Whether its virtual or physical should really have no bearing.

I highly recommend Pete Long's migration article for 2010 to 2013.

Apart from Gareth advise above, you can also check Exchange Deployment assistant tool.

Remember, migrating doesn't mean only exchange server migration, you need to migrate or point other 3rd party tools to your 2013, so before you plan exchange migration, check the requirement about your 3rd party tool, whether those can work with 2013 or not. Don't forget change in Public folder. http://exchangeserverpro.com/exchange-server-2010-2013-migration-moving-public-folders/

Also, make sure your client OS and Outlook version should be compatible with 2013. Read these

Finally remember, in Exchange 2013, outlook connects over http. You might face issue after introducing Exchange 2013. So be prepared. Read this.
